VirtualBox Shrink and Clone helper

hi everyone, this is my first post. here is a little app i made for myself to ease the cloning and shrinking process of virtualbox just thought it would be useful for someone out there. if i have violated any rules please delete the post.

one should know that he/she must clean defrag and delete free space within virtualbox before shrinking of .vdi files can be done. tested on 32 bit XP and windows 7

Hi, may I ask - why did you develop this app? It's neat little app for sure, but I don't see why I would need it in the future... Good app though (I'm keeping it just in case...)

well i usually clone my virtualbox vdi so that i don't have to reinstall windows. i create a new virtual machine and use the cloned vdi. now to do this i always have to edit a pre-made batch file, to change the destination vdi and the source vdi. also when i configure the machines i usually shrink them and its back to editing another batch file made specifically for cloning, so i got fed up and made this.
